There are some essentials every man needs to take on his travels, which will ensure he is prepared for every eventuality. Take a look at the five staple items you must pack in your case when travelling on a holiday or trip.

Comfortable Sneakers

A pair of comfortable sneakers is a must when travelling the world, whether you are on a city break or tropical holiday, because they are a must for long walks when exploring a town, city or resort. Opt for a breathable, lightweight pair of sneakers that will feel comfortable and stylish in any weather. Also, it pays to choose a neutral colour so they match different holiday outfits, so black sneakers are always a great option.

Swimming Trunks

Whether you are heading to a sun-kissed resort or an icy-cold destination, a good pair of swimming trunks are an essential item in your suitcase, because you never know when you will want to take a dip in the pool or a warming hot tub. Also, if it is a little cold outside, a good pair of swimming trunks can be easily worn as an extra layer underneath your trousers.

A White T-Shirt

The staple white t-shirt is a must in every man’s closet, let alone their suitcase, because it can adapt to all seasons and styles. The clothing item can be worn alone or with a jacket, jumper or shirt, and the colour can suit any shade, so it is perfect for mixing and matching holiday looks.

A Good Shirt

Every man needs to pack at least one good shirt, because you never know if you will be invited to dinner at a locals’ house or will book a table at a luxurious restaurant. A classic Oxford shirt is also a breathable, smart option that is adaptable for varying temperatures, and it can often be wrinkle resistant, so you will not have to worry about the dreaded ironing when abroad.

A Sweater

Even if you are visiting a tropical destination, you will never regret packing a sweater in your luggage, as you can put it on during a colder evening or night. Opt for a plain sweater that can be worn alone or with a shirt, so it is adaptable for a sophisticated dining experience or a hike up a hill.

Staple items will minimize the amount of luggage you need to pack for your travels, which could even result in you taking only a carry-on case with on your flight, depending on the length of your trip.
